Planning permission to extend.

Are there any way I can find out if planning permission to extend a property out the back is likely to be granted, before committing myself to a property?

  • The Planning Portal is a good place to start. You could also call the Local Authority and ask to speak with one of the planning officers.

  • A first step is to look for other property in the road that have been subject to extension. If large numbers have been then there will clearly be a president. Dependant on the scale of the extension you require for most authorities will generally allow an increase of around 30-35% of the total floor space without too much of a battle however this does depend on issues such whether you live in a conservation area, if the property is listed and the visual impact on neighbouring houses. Must local authorities will have a duty planning officer or clinic so pop in and ask to speak to them.
